Of all his novels, none is more compelling and thrilling than 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea . This extraordinary voyage into the depths of the unknown aboard the legendary submarine Nautilus --commanded by the brilliant, tragic Captain Nemo--explores both the limitless possibilities of science and the twisted labyrinth of the human mind. The novel stands as science fiction raised to the level of literature and remains a vivid expression of a new era of technological advancement and humanity's place within that world.
